Your home is your castle, a place of comfort and refuge when your day isn’t going that great. Often, stepping through our front door makes us breathe a sigh of relief to be home. However, this isn’t always the case. Sometimes, the clutter and mess can build up and suddenly our home isn’t a pleasant place to be anymore. Here are our best tips for simple ways to be happier at home:
Make the bed
Waking up in the morning is never anyone’s favourite part of the day! Taking two minutes to make the bed when you get up will immediately make your room look tidier, and will make bed much more pleasant to return to at the end of a long day.
Display personal mementoes
Experiences make us happier that physical objects, and reminders of these joyful moments can help bring us back to that happy feeling. Display personal mementoes, such as photographs, throughout your home and make it a gallery of positive memories.
A cluttered home makes a cluttered mind! Here’s a top tip: Whenever you leave a room, take 5 minutes to clear clutter and set it back to the way it was previously. By doing this as you go, you are preventing clutter build up and making the room much more pleasurable to return to.
Think of others
If you can’t motivate yourself to do the dishes or fold the laundry, then do it for your significant other, your children or your roommate! Often, the act of doing something to help out someone else is far more rewarding then just doing it because you have to.
Make time for yourself
What good is a home if you never relax in it? Sometimes the chores can wait while you carve out time for yourself doing something that you love. Whether it’s taking a hot bubble bath, or reading a book in the sun on your back deck, every day do something at home that brings you happiness.
